And we have a trashing

The second death of Serbia and Montenegro has just taken place. The goal of Crespo (half of success in life is to show up) the run of Tevez (one is never served as well as by oneself) and the final 6th nail by Messi (from nowhere is always a good place to start a run to the gate) have signified the official end of the country which could never overcome such a trashing (6-0).

As for Argentina, I do not know if it is enough to secure one of the 4 finishing spots in the tournament, but at least the ignominy of 4 years ago has been erased. Argentina is back, watch out!

This pic is not that great but it summarizes the game perfectly: Argentina high above Serbia Montenegro.

You spose the Serbs and Montenegrins will blame each other? I guess this gives them one more reason to divorce.

Daniel, you missed that first Argy game, it was far more hard-fought. If you had seen it, you might have been less surprised at this one. The Ivorians were an extremely tough team, and the Args had to fight hard in that one, I was exhausted just watching; Here, the Args played with the Serbs like a cat toy.

I just want to go on record saying that there's no room for mezquindad here...Argentina was amazing in this game. I was disappointed with the Serbs, they just seemed to give up after the second goal...I mean, sure, a come back was very hard to imagine at that point, but still, it's the world cup, 800,000,000 people are watching you...the least you could do is hustle. They didn't, and took four extra goals as a result...

And what goals! All perfectly formed little gems of team-play and technical brilliance. Weak adversary or not, there's just no questioning the futbol recital we saw. Superb.

Quico, posting from the road...

Great picture! Even better trivia! Guess we can say Argentina is soaring over the shoulders of giants.
